OVERTURE

Matthew Bourne's New Adventures & Re:Bourne Overture programme, for emerging Community Dance Artists is an exceptional professional development opportunity for emerging dance practitioners working in communities across England. Over a dozen artists have been invited to participate in four residential weekends at Farnham Maltings. 

Project leader and New Adventures & Re:Bourne Resident Artist Kerry Biggin says,

"The programme is built around sessions to develop their practice and by encouraging thinking, evaluation and skill sharing, building networks and importantly refresh and inspire.”

Last year we also had community dance artist Tom Hobden onboard, helping to curate the sessions.

Zenovia Grant, 16-17 Cohort says,

"I feel very fortunate to be a part of the 2016-17 cohort I've made some incredible friends and connected with a variety of creatives. This is the most powerful I have felt within my creative life to date.”
